WINTER WONDERLAND TERRARIUM CENTREPIECES

Welcome to today’s blog post! Thanks for joining me!

In case you haven’t noticed, I might be a little obsessed with terrariums. I make them for almost every season, because they are just so darn easy! No painting, priming, gluing, or waiting for stuff to dry. For this craft all you have to do is assemble, display, and enjoy!

These Winter Wonderland Terrariums are inspired by the classic snow globe, but without the commitment. By using mostly every day stuff you already have, you’ll only have to store the specifically winter themed items after Christmas. Plus, when you make them again next year, you can change them up to match your new theme! Perfect for renters like myself, with minimal storage space.

FOR THIS PROJECT YOU WILL NEED:

Clear glassware such as vases, jars, and bowls

A bag of sugar (I used a 4kg bag and had some to spare)

Battery operated string lights

Assorted sizes of miniature trees

Wood pieces

Toys such as woodland animals, vehicles, etc. (you could also use Santa, elves, presents and the like)

I sourced my crafts from local dollar stores, and my deer are all from Amazon.ca under ‘schleich toys‘.
Find the buck here, the doe here, and the fawn here.
All of the glassware pictured came from HomeSense.

Now let’s make them, in 3 easy steps:

1. ARRANGE STRING LIGHTS

Tape the lights inside the jars before you add the sugar, to ensure they don’t lift and pop out during assembly. I used two 6ft. strands of lights for four vases. If you share your strands between multiple vases, be careful when carrying them to your desired destination. Other options: use one strand per vase, or assemble them where you will be displaying them so you don’t have to carry them at all.

2. POUR SUGAR

Don’t worry about making them level – create little hills and divots to make them look more like a natural snowy forest.

Use your finger or the handle of a wooden spoon to swirl the sugar around.

3. ADD TREES, WOOD, AND TOYS

The fun part! Figure out where all your pieces are going, then start adding them in.

AND THAT’S IT!

Your terrariums are all done!

I hope you enjoyed today’s craft! If you make some for your home this winter, I’d love to see. Drop me a comment! And subscribe to my blog on the right or below, my next post is an exciting one that will serve you all December long – trust me, you won’t want to miss it!
